The EuroMillions jackpot was not won on Friday, 19th February and has rolled over to a record massive guaranteed jackpot of €210 Million on Tuesday, 23rd February.
Under the EuroMillions community rules, the jackpot is capped when it reaches €210m and any excess which would normally be allocated to the jackpot will flow down to the next prize tier at which there are winners - e.g. based on sales when the Jackpot is capped at €210m the jackpot could grow to €220m, then the jackpot remains capped at €210m but the excess €10m flows down to the next tier where there is a winner and is shared with those winner(s).
As Friday, 19th February's jackpot of €206 Million was not won, the jackpot cap will be reached on Tuesday, 23rd February.

What is the EuroMillions Cap?
Under the EuroMillions community games rules, the jackpot is capped once it reaches €210 million.
What happens when the jackpot reaches a €210 million cap?
When the jackpot reaches a cap of €210 million, it is fixed and guaranteed at that level. This means that any excess amount above €210 million that would normally increase the jackpot size does not, but flows down to the next tier at which there are prize winners. For example: the jackpot has reached a cap of €210m, but the natural jackpot would be €220m. That excess of €10m (between the fixed €210m and the natural €220m) flows down to the next tier at which there is/are winner(s). From a players point of view this means there is still a life transforming jackpot of €210m on offer, but also potentially the chance of other million euro prizes to be won in the game.
What happens if the jackpot of €210m is not won?
The jackpot remains fixed and guaranteed at the €210 million cap for the next draw and any excess jackpot value, above €210m, again flows down to the next prize tier at which there are winners.
How long can the jackpot remain capped at €210m?
The jackpot can remain capped at €210m for a total of five successive draws. On the fifth draw if there is still no jackpot winner then the full amount, the €210m and any excess jackpot value, flows down to the next prize tier that there is/are a winner(s) and so Must Be Won.
